In July 1992, the foundation stone-laying ceremony (shilanyas) had taken place at the 2.77-acre plot of land. It was acquired by Kalyan Singh’s BJP government in UP. Thereafter, Babri Masjid demolition picked up as it was preplanned. And BJP used the power of Kar Sevaks in a wrong way.
Kar sevaks had gathered for a foundation stone-laying ceremony of the proposed main gate ‘Singhdwar’. That was a disputed site, where the Babri Masjid was stood.
Human bones were found on the land that was being levelled. And prepared in July 1992. However, the land was registered as a Muslim graveyard in revenue records.

Truth can’t be hidden for long. This is how BJP blatantly misused their power and misusing continuously for all Indians. And India has been falling down. Wake up and let India progress. And keep this truthful pictures of the Babri Masjid demolition to share with coming generation. Let them know true history. We cannot change history because there will be always someone, who know the truth. However, the BJP changed the history of India, but for some. And some know very well that BJP speaks lies and also the truthful history of India.
